About Us

Chorleywood Residents’ Association (CRA) is a dedicated group of community-spirited volunteers who are passionate about maintaining the special and friendly character of Chorleywood. All Chorleywood residents are automatically members of the Residents’ Association.

CRA holds regular meetings with Three Rivers District Council (TRDC), Chorleywood Parish Council (CPC), Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) and our local MP. We are run by the Executive Committee, which meets on the 3rd Monday of each month.

We hold an Annual General Meeting at which the Committee is elected and the Report and Accounts are approved. See Minutes for the archive of Executive Committee meeting minutes.

Chorleywood Residents’ Association is funded by voluntary donations from residents, membership of our 100 Club, and local businesses advertising in our twice-yearly magazine, The Chorleywood Resident, which is delivered to each and every household in Chorleywood Parish.

Volunteers are always welcome.  Get in touch using our Contact Form if you’d like to get involved!
